Diner Reviews
  • "Bar was great. From there, it was downhill. I believe that the server thought we were deaf, since she talked so LOUD and FAST!!! I had to have her repeat several thing since I couldn't understand her! Incredible. As for the food, appetizer and dessert were okay, but main entree wasn't. Overspiced chicken and shrimp. Filer was good though. If I go back, I'll stick with the filet and be happy. And for the background music? You've hot to be kidding me!!! Broadway musicals? Lousy jazz? Play something that doesn't compete with the conversations of your patrons, and turn it down! "

  • "Everything was fantastic, it would have been a perfect night except the bouillon we had for our meat was very bland and there was almost no flavor. I don't see why I pay 90 dollars for a meal and need to pay for the water to cook the meat and give it the flavor I desire, but it was ruined by a watery vegetable broth. Other than that it was great and I will return and try."

  • "We were there celebrating a family birthday and our waitress was very pleasant and the food was all very good. The changing of courses process however, was really slow and we had to wait a long time between courses/additional ingredients."

  • "Took my fiancé there for dinner. Neither of us had been there in years. We had a GREAT time. Had a cozy little table in a back nook. So secluded and romantic. Service was impeccable. Food was decadent. So much! Gooey Swiss cheese. Rich dark chocolate and entrees were very nice. We had a wonderful time. Not a cheap night but for a special occasion definitely worth the four course experience!"

  • "The Melting Pot in Rocky River went above and beyond for my wife's birthday. I emailed ahead of time that it was her birthday and purchased flowers. The flowers were waiting for us in our own private booth. The host and hostess welcomed us with a happy birthday, as did our waiter and many other employees. The private booth was really cool and they even brought out a chocolate-covered strawberry with a sparkler in it. My wife was very impressed with my prior planning, but I was more impressed with the Melting Pot going above and beyond on my wife's special day."

  • "I decided on a whim to plan a dinner out for a small group if us. The ambiance wasn't too noisy even for a busy Friday night. We were seated quickly, our drink order was taken as soon as we were seated. Ordering our 4-course was easy. Our waiter was friendly. Everything really was great except dessert. For some reason the chocolate didn't taste right, which we later figured out was a hint of something that didn't burn off when they lit the flame in our chocolate. We've been there for many occasions, even just this minor unpleasant experience certainly won't keep us away from going back."

  • "Went to the Melting pot with my husband and another couple. Last time my husband and I were there Todd was out server and he was great. We were lucky enough to have Todd again. He remembered us from our last visit. He remembered how much my husband liked a certain dish and made sure to bring extra of what he liked. He also remembered they were out of sparklers last time we were there and made sure to bring us a dish with sparklers on it. It was my sister in laws first visit and she was very impressed. Amazing food as always- and amazing service! Thanks Todd!"

  • "Had a fun night celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately they had all of their 2 burner tables full, so we had to share the same dishes (instead of having 2 options). Would have liked the ability to reserve one of the larger four-tops."

  • "We celebrated our valentines day there. As our first time visiting this restaurant we would have liked more of an explanation of how the courses work. We didn't know our cheese would be removed and we had used it sparingly. Our overall bill was 150$+ and we had vegetables and some drinks. The prices are extremely high and we won't be visiting again. Had the portions been more or price less it would have been a better experience."

  • "We were frustrated since we had 7 pm reservations, we entered 6:50 and were checked in and told it would be a few minutes which was perfectly fine. Then many others entered including people who had 7:15 reservations. Everyone was seated before us and at 7:20 the hostess said "Christy we will seat you in a moment". Slight problem, that is not our name. So she asked again for our name only to find out that according to her records we had been seated 20 minutes before only no one ever picked up the seating ticket and so we were missed. We were then seated with a quick apology and that was it. The food and server after that were excellent. But that was a bit frustrating as we had plans after dinner that then had to be altered."

  • "My husband and I had a 6:30pm reservation. We arrived at the restaurant at 6:29pm and checked in. We did not get seated until 6:50pm, so I'm not sure what the purpose of the reservation was. Then, we didn't even have a server come take our drink order until 6:56pm. We ordered water and a glass of wine. The waters came relatively quickly, but a full 20 minutes passed and I still didn't have my wine. We had to ask another server about the wine because we didn't see our waitress during that whole time. By the time we finally got any food, it had been over an hour since we first arrived. That aside, the food was really great."

  • "We go to The Melting Pot about once per year. Typically the service is very good. The staff seemed overwhelmed this time around. Overall we still had a nice dinner."

  • "Went here for valentines day with my girlfriend. And it was perfect! Worst part was waiting to be seated but they even passed out free drinks for everyone waiting!!! The food was unbelievable the employees were fantastic, everything about this place was beautiful! One of the best dining experiences i have ever had. I will be returning for my birthday coming up without a doubt."

  • "The Melting pot is one of my favorites. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. They never once gave us a scowl about bringing in a 8-10 month old child who is teething. We are upfront about the child and they put us in the back, its quiet secluded and the rest of the diners don't know there is a mildly fussy baby right next door. The food is on par with the price. We usually spend 75 bucks and enjoy every course from cheese to chocolate. When in doubt Melting Pot!"

  • "I ordered the valentines day special and reserved a table. We were seated fairly quickly after enjoying a drink at the bar. The place looked great but I just didn't care for the main course. The app and deserts are worth it but boiled meat and shrimp was the disappointment. I will say the staff did a very nice job and the place was very well kept. I probably won't go back but it is worth trying if you have never been there before."

  • "Atmosphere very nice. Very clean. Wine was nice and chilled. Then the food came. Tasted like bagged salad, wilted and brown. Cheese fondue was just okay but I could have done it better from home. Could the pieces of veggies have been any smaller! Part of our entree was suppose to have been filet mignon. No way. I had to wrap two pieces that I couldn't chew in to my napkin. Chicken was crusted in some horrible herb mix. The shrimp was tasty though. The saving grace was the yummy chocolate fondue. For such a high priced menu I would have expected good food. We drove over an hour for our special occasion and both were very disappointed. We won't go back."

  • "I took my wife & three kids to the Melting Pot for my daughters 10th Birthday. Yes, I know it isn't a kid place but wanted to eat at a nicer place. Kids had a great time testing & tasting the various foods. Sticking the sticks in the pot was enough to keep them entertained. The cheese fondue was the best then it went downhill from there. The portions are small, which I am fine with, however, the filet serving is two slices 1/8-1/4" thick. The others have 2-3 lumps of meat to boil in a pot. The flavor is unremarkable save for the Cajun. I guess if I am going to drop $50 a person (plus adult drinks) I will go to a real place such as Ruth Chris Steakhouse or L'Albatross. The waitress was top notch, very friendly and chatty with the kids."

  • "Here is one tip however, when making your reservation please state how many burners you would like. We had a table for 4 and they originally sat us at a one burner table which first off is too small and more importantly, part of the fun is the two burners so mix and match and share. That being said, our waiter talked to the host and we were moved to a 4 burner. I have to admit there where a couple of high maintenance people at our table and they bent over backwards to accommodate our party. Everything was fabulous as always."
